I have a newly aquired 10 yr old collie cross. If she has had enough of walking in a particular direction or wants to go a different way she just stops, turns around and runs away. If she's on the lead she just gets slower and slower until we are creeping along and keeps planting and refusing to move. I've tried using treats to help with recalls and this has helped to stop her running off - she will come back for a treat - but i seem to have made the slowing and planting worse. This is what happens: (Off lead) I keep glancing round to check in case dog is going the wrong way or has stopped and is about to turn and run off. If so, i call dog and treat her when she returns. Dog is now watching for these glances and if she spots one she immediately stops and waits for the recall/treat! She is stopping more and more frequently! (On lead) Dog slows or plants, i call and treat. Dog is now walking slower and slower, staring at me the whole time, waiting for the call and treat and planting much more frequently! I can see how i've accidently made the problems worse but what should i be doing and do i still get points for trying?
